How Much Snow Do You Have On Near By Lakes

Recommended Posts

With the recent storm on Saturday, how much snow do you have on your lakes and how much ice did you have before the snow. In S.E.N.D. the lakes had 4 to 5 inches of snow. Now most lakes have over a foot of snow. Which means lots of slush.

 

What do you have

I checked some lakes on Friday and the slush was pretty Minimal. If there was slush it was less than 1” or was refroze. But most was dry under the snow. Now after the big dumping of snow (11”) we now have 17” on the ground in central MN. Things could get sloppy or dangerous. Heard of a few smaller lakes that opened back up but a lot of bigger lakes up north I like to get to locked up last night with the -1 low.

Well I have close to a foot of snow in my yard but zero ice as of last weekend.  The lakes finally froze over Sunday night but the next 3 days are going to be in the mid 30's.  Next week looks great right now.  Lets just hope the ice can hang on until then.

Yes that will be great and since we wont have any snow on the ice is should make some serious ice and quickly.  I just hope the lakes that froze over the other night can make it through this warm spell.  As long as the wind doesn't pick up to much I think they will make it.

Would be nice if the wind blew and blew some of the snow off the lakes, so they can freeze faster.

The only problem with that is it was wet and heavy when it fell, it isn't going anywhere until it melts off.

Were you just checking it Dave, or did you spend the night? 

We went up and spent the night at a friend's cabin about 5 miles away. We planned to stay in the camper but when we were offered a nice warm cabin we said yes!

It would have been interesting to hear how the heater kept up?

 

Say, did you get a different camper?  They don't put those dbl sliders on smaller travel trailers much? 🙂

Yeah, we found an older park model for sale at a good price just down the road so we bought it at about the end of the season. We sold our smaller one to some friends of ours. We really like the extra room and the slide out. 

 

We just need to move the deck over by the sliding door in the spring.

We stayed in the smaller one last winter just fine. I have no doubt this on would be the same but I probably wouldn't want to stay in this sub-zero weather we have going now.

Yeah, when you're doing seasonal it's nice to have a little more room to spread out and relax or have the extra room for folks to stay with you. 👍

    • Thanks, that is exactly what is needed.  But of course my mom wouldn't let me look at the chairs tonight so that's that.  
    • Those sticky felt pads?
    • Maybe this?   https://myeasyparts.com/epd_english/chair-glides-furniture-glides/adjustable-leveling-glides/sofia-leveling-feet-glides/leveling-adjustable-feet-1-38-base-diameter-716-x-1-by-12-stem-sofia-style-a-63de.html    
    • Red neck fix- take a belt sander and sand a flat spot in the caters so they won’t turn and you are set
    • What you want exists. I used to work for a company that produced a standing chair and I saw parts like that. The trick will be sourcing them in the quantity you need. might want to check with Grainger or McMaster-carr.   How about splurging on your Mom and getting her a new table and chairs set? Might be easier.😀
    • The legs are fairly long/wide rectangular and so I don't see this type of thing working.  What I would really like would be some sort of device that had the shaft but a flat piece of plastic rather than the casters.  But I've never seen anything like that.
    • Couldn't you pry them off with a channel locks and put a rubber chair-table leg cap on them?   
    • Mom just got wooden flooring installed in her kitchen.  The chairs she has have casters, the ones with the shaft that gets inserted into the sleeve on the bottom of the leg.  We'd like to get something was just a flat piece that wouldn't move so easily.  Concern is that the 93-year-old will take a tumble if the chairs moves as she sits down.  
    • It was a flooded camper to start.  $400 basically I paid for a rolling shell.  Here is Iowa not much ice yet, Okoboji should cap tonight.  So hopefully in a couple weeks we will be fishing.  Im wiring it tonight and insulation late this week.  Hopefully we will be done before the 1st of the year or so.   
    • When I built my wheelhouse 5 years ago I wanted total wheel alignment capability. I designed my axles around bolt on wheel hubs with ability to compound shim achieving correct camber and toe. Saw way too many boat trailers with serious worn tires due to hubs welded to axels. (Tire in photo attached to 2x4 was used during build so I could cut the grass.)
